Poll: Minnesota voters support right to work referendum … 55/24

It looks like Indiana has started a trend by becoming a right-to-work state. Now Minnesota residents have indicated--by a 2 to 1 margin--that they are interested in adopting that position. It seems that people are becoming tired of union bullying, protecting ineffective workers, and using millions of dollars of union dues to support liberal politicians who--like Marcy Kaptur--only focus their efforts on union workers.

Here's a link to an article that provides more details.

"The politicians and corporate special interests who are pushing this unfair legislation know that unions are a check on corporate greed, and they are working overtime to silence the collective voice of our teachers, nurses and firefighters."

Right to work aides development. Unlike wolfman's this is a fact based article and ot commentary, of which I'm not sure he's aware of the difference.

From the article:

"A more recent (2012) study comes from Michael Hicks, an adjunct scholar with the Mackinac Center. Writing for Ball State University’s Center for Business and Economic Research, he found that from 1929 through 2005, the presence of a right-to-work law did not play a role in state industrial composition or income from manufacturing.

Hicks did, however, find a significant influence of right-to-work laws on both “accumulated growth of manufacturing incomes” and the yearly changes in the share of manufacturing in the decade following passage of a right-to-work law in the 10 most recent states to adopt such a measure. According to Hicks, seven of the 10 saw manufacturing incomes increase — after adjusting for inflation — between 15 percent and 40 percent.

Economist Richard Vedder’s 2010 study “Right-to-Work Laws: Liberty, Prosperity, and Quality of Life” in the Cato Journal tackles such laws from a migration angle. For many researchers migration reflects an investment in oneself, and helps aggregate “quality of life” issues into a single variable.

Vedder, also an adjunct scholar with the Center, notes that 40 percent of Americans lived in right-to-work states in 2007, up from 28.5 percent in 1970. Moreover, Census data indicates that from April 2000 to July 2008, more than 4.7 million people moved from non-right-to-work states to right-to-work states."

So there you have it from the Ultra-Right Wing Extremist Terrorist probably Koch Funded and Bank backed(just conjecture here) Ball State University.
